“Seattle, Washington is one of the most expensive places to live in America. It’s also one of the healthiest—which is why one landlord decided to offer his tenants a very specific coupon.

Jinesh Varia doesn't eat meat, and he's currently landlord for a (by all appearances) lovely townhouse he’s renting out in a Seattle suburb. According to a report by K5 News, Varia will be offering tenants a $200 monthly discount if they stick to a vegan or vegetarian diet. He believes that vegetarian diets are the right way to go “ethically and morally.”

“I really believe, just like the no smoking policy that all landlords have today, that we can promote this as a way to spread awareness. See if I can create a trend,” he told the station.”
